Nashville, TN -- Following the premiere of their first national TV series The Dailey & Vincent Show on RFD-TV, the “Rockstars of Bluegrass” will bring their critically acclaimed signature sound to the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn. on Thursday, October 15 for Opry Country Classic at the Ryman. The show is set to begin at 7:00 p.m.

Gracing stages nationwide at historic venues such as Carnegie Hall, Library of Congress (Coolidge Auditorium), and the Ryman Auditorium with their distinct sonic hybrid of bluegrass, country and gospel influences, the duo went on to tape their first ever LIVE CD/DVD and Public Television concert special at The Hylton Performing Arts Center. Since it's premiere on Nashville Public Television (NPT) in December, the "Dailey & Vincent ALIVE! - In Concert" special is now broadcast on PBS stations nationwide and has been aired in over 84 markets with an estimate of over 1 million impressions. The live CD debuted at #1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Charts and the DVD debuted at #2 on the Billboard Music Video Sales Chart just behind the Foo Fighters. Both are now available for purchase at all Old Cracker Barrel Country Stores nationwide and CrackerBarrel.com.
Dubbed by CMT as the "Rockstars of Bluegrass," the Dailey & Vincent duo has been hailed throughout the music industry as one of the most exciting, reputable and elite Bluegrass bands in America, having won numerous awards for their uniquely contagious and riveting music, including: three Grammy Award Nominations for the 2014 “Bluegrass Album of the Year;” 14 IBMA Awards (International Bluegrass Music Awards) as three-time “Entertainer of the Year,” three-time “Vocal Group of the Year” and “Album of the Year” and four Dove Awards with three “Bluegrass Album of the Year” awards and “Bluegrass Song of the Year.”
2015 has been a momentous and successful year for the award-winning duo starting with the success of their national PBS special “Dailey & Vincent ALIVE! – In Concert,” which has been aired in over 84 markets with an estimate of over 1 million impressions. The special was later released as the duo’s first ever live CD/DVD, with the live CD debuting at #1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Charts and the DVD debuting at #2 across all genres on the Billboard Music Video Sales Chart, just behind the Foo Fighters. Dailey & Vincent also premiered their first national television series, The Dailey & Vincent Show, on RFD-TV in early September. The show is a weekly 30-minute music, entertainment, and lifestyle show - full of music, humor and fun – which includes live performances and interview segments by special guests such as Vince Gill, The Oak Ridge Boys, Jimmy Fortune of the Statler Brothers and Emily West (runner up on America’s Got Talent) among other famed Country, Bluegrass and inspirational acts.
Dailey & Vincent continue to grace the stages of historic venues nationwide with their return to Carnegie Hall in early 2016 and the Ryman Auditorium, where they sold out three consecutive shows and first debuted their music as a duo in 2007.
Prior to forming the duo in 2007, the Bluegrass seasoned veterans Jamie Dailey and Darrin Vincent, had previously garnered great personal success. A four-time IBMA ‘Vocalist of the Year’ award winner, Dailey sang and performed with groups such as Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver. Vincent has accumulated five GRAMMY Awards, has been voted Bluegrass Bass Player of the Year four years in a row (2009-20012), and is a former, ten-year band member for the GRAMMY Award-winning Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder. Both have performed alongside famous acts such as Dolly Parton, Vince Gill, Emmylou Harris and more. The duo performs over 120 shows per year with an 85% sell-out rate in the United States and recently listed at #34 on Pollstar's "Concert Pulse."
